PROFESSIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Content and Instructional Strategies for Common Core Implementation
Over the past few months, the Winthrop University-School Partnership Network has hosted many conversations regarding how to collaboratively engage in professional learning related to the implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Considering districts vary in their approach to implementation, we have identified areas not necessarily aimed at teaching the CCSS, but rather addressing the various content and instructional effects related to diverse student needs. The Winthrop-University School Partnership Network is accepting proposals to offer modules addressing needs identified by the Partnership districts. Individuals or groups may submit a proposal to deliver a requested module according to the guidelines listed below. Session presenters will be compensated a total (not per presenter) of $200 for every six hours of professional development delivered (e.g., if the professional development runs for 12 hours, the presenters will be compensated $400).
Modules should be designed to provide at least 6 hours of professional development. Session times may vary including after school, weekend, and during school hours. Delivery method is at the discretion of the instructor(s) and can include face-to-face contact, meetings via Polycom video conferencing technology, Skype and/or Elluminate sessions, etc. Regardless of delivery method, modules should be interactive in nature with participants actively engaged in “make and take” learning. Because the compensation for modules comes from the Partnership, instructor(s) must agree to:
Upon completion of the professional development, participants will receive an email to complete an electronic session evaluation. After submission of the evaluation, the participant will receive a certificate that can be submitted to the district for recertification credit.
Instructor Qualifications and Proposal Submission
Instructors should possess the credentials and expertise to design and deliver professional development sessions. Proposals must be approved by the building principal (if employed at a school) and the district superintendent or designee. Those granting approval are endorsing the instructor as an expert in the field associated with the proposal. Sessions may be delivered by individuals or teams of instructors.
To submit a proposal, follow the guidelines found on the Proposal Submission Form. Proposals must be submitted at least three weeks prior to starting to provide participants enough time to register. Opportunities will be posted on the NetSCOPE professional learning page at http://www2.winthrop.edu/netscope/professional_learning.htm.
Requested Content for Modules
The list below includes suggested areas identifies as needs by the Partnership Network – other content related to the Common Core may be proposed for professional development. Proposals may address only one area or multiple areas for longer professional development sessions.
